Subsistence Management Regulations for Public Lands in Alaska-2021-22 and 2022-23 Subsistence Taking of Fish and Shellfish Regulations
Document Number: 2020-03306
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2020-02-19
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Fish and Wildlife Service, Department of the Interior
This proposed rule would establish regulations for fish and shellfish seasons, harvest limits, methods, and means related to taking of fish and shellfish for subsistence uses during the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 regulatory years. The Federal Subsistence Board (Board) is on a schedule of completing the process of revising subsistence taking of fish and shellfish regulations in odd-numbered years and subsistence taking of wildlife regulations in even-numbered years; public proposal and review processes take place during the preceding year. The Board also addresses customary and traditional use determinations during the applicable cycle. When final, the resulting rulemaking will replace the existing subsistence fish and shellfish taking regulations. This proposed rule could also amend the general regulations on subsistence taking of fish and wildlife.
